I'm MOW :hat:

Who'd have thought it :confused:

Of course I only found out a few minutes ago. I was all set to spend last night online catching up on my "reading" when the sky took an ominous turn….

Hmmmm, looks like a storm brewing. The next thing there's a flash, and a distant boom of thunder. Time to batten down the hatches.

Ever since my landlady's PC got fried by a lightning strike down her telephone line – her modem exploded :yikes: – I've been really paranoid about unplugging my own computer in storms. So that put paid to my surfing.

It wouldn't have mattered much anyway, because the power went out about 20 minutes after the rain started. So I had a quiet evening reading poetry by candle light. It would have been romantic, except I was reading Ian McMillan

The Fog and Me
by Ian McMillan

It was so foggy today
I couldn't see my hand
in front of my face.

I know because I waved at myself
and I didn't wave back.


Today was busy yet again. Mom's gone mad buying plants in the end of season sales a the local Garden Centres. So besides transporting, there was transplanting. Including a crabapple tree.

So I finally get around to checking Opera and I find I'm Member of the Week. 😮 I never really expected it. Though, to be honest, I did wonder what it might be like if it ever did happen. It feels quite nice. 😉

Well, thanks again, everyone. I couldn't have done it without you. :up:

Keep the faith, whatever yours is. :spock:
